10-K, 10-Q, and S-1 filings provide investors with a vital source of information about the risks and opportunities associated with publicly traded companies. In order to understand the impact of these filings on investment decisions, however, analysts first need to extract information from complex and variable XML documents. For an analyst doing this by hand, it would take over 300 hours to extract and structure the content of the risk factors section for each of the 4,000+ publicly traded companies in the US. It could take equally long to develop custom parsing code capable of handling all of the corner cases that appear in real-world filings.
